  • Demetrius Toliver, 32, was found shot to death in his car in July. 
  • Police say Toliver’s car rolled into a home after the shooting. 
  • Two witnesses could lead them to clues in the murder. 

It’s been nearly four months since Demetrius Toliver was found dead in his car in an Ellenwood neighborhood. 

But two men — Wadriss “Seattle” Jovan Davis and Tenarius “T-Rock” Lamar Richardson — could be key in helping Clayton County police solve the Lithonia man’s murder. 

Toliver, 32, was found shot to death in his car July 22 in the 4400 block of Chester Lane, Clayton County police Sgt. Ashanti Marbury said. Detectives determined that Toliver’s car rolled into a house after the shooting. 

Investigators say Toliver was visiting Davis and Richardson at the home where the shooting occurred. Marbury said the duo were renting the home. 

Detectives want to interview the men “regarding their knowledge of facts related to the murder of Toliver,” Marbury said.

Police say Richardson recently released a mix tape under his rap alias in Atlanta. He is 5-foot-8 and weighs 180 pounds; Davis is 5-10 and weighs 160 pounds.
